MTA: going your way, or going away?

The MTA will hold a public hearing in Brooklyn on January 28 regarding its proposed service cuts and fare hikes. We encourage everyone to attend and make the case for more public transportation, not less. The MTA's official hearing notice explains the procedures for speaking:
Registration to speak will be open until 9 p.m. on the dates of the hearings. Oral testimony is limited to 3 minutes per speaker. To register to speak in advance of the hearings, for more information, or to comment in writing contact Douglas Sussman, Dir, MTA Community Affairs, 347 Madison Ave, NY, NY 10017, (212) 878-7483. Additional information can be found at www.mta.info. Comments may also be made on the MTA website.
